UMC Reviving ‘Drive Away Hunger’ Holiday Food Drive
Participants get to drive on the racetrack in exchange for donations
TOOELE VALLEY, UTAH (October 15, 2019) — Utah Motorsports Campus is pleased to announce the revival of the popular “Drive Away Hunger” food drive, which is scheduled for Saturday, November 2, from 11 am – 2 pm.
“’Drive Away Hunger’ was a holiday tradition that we established during the Miller Motorsports Park days,” said Dixon Hunt, UMC Senior Vice President. “We’re very happy to bring it back as an annual event this year. We wanted to do something to give back to the community that has been so welcoming and supportive, and this seems like the perfect way to do that.”
Participants are asked to make a donation of non-perishable food items, clothing (coats, gloves, hats), blankets or toys. In exchange for their donation, participants will be allowed to participate in a Parade Lap around UMC’s world-renowned 4.5-mile Full Course circuit. The Parade Lap will commence at 1:30 pm. All vehicle occupants must wear seat belts. Any street-legal vehicle is eligible, and no experience is necessary.
As in years past, all proceeds will be donated to the Utah Food Bank and Tooele Food Bank.
“Utah Food Bank is incredibly grateful for the support of Utah Motorsports Campus,” said Ginette Bott, Utah Food Bank President & CEO. “Their event will help ‘Drive Away Hunger’ for the 374,000 Utahns who struggle with food insecurity.”
